London Manx Trophy traced

Following an enquiry from Sam about the Mary Weller award at Yn Cruinnaght, Chloë Woolley tells us she had a root in her stock/archive boxes cupboard at work at Culture Vannin, and, unlike the silver cup she had in mind, discovered . . .

She thinks it had been stored in the attic of Ramsey Town Hall and passed to Culture Vannin a few years ago. Now the LMS committee will need to discuss its future. Members’ ideas welcome.

It’s interesting that the plaque at the bottom says: Yn Chruinnaght Solo instrumental 11 years and under
Winners were:
1996 Kate Collister
1998 Lindsey Skillicorn
1999 Lindsey Skillicorn
2000 Kirsty Kermeen
And the final winner was
2003 Tom Callister Wafer (who has now gone on to be a well-known fiddle
player with Imar and Barrule!)

On the back it says Hand Carved C. Jefferson 1989
